Fable Aesop
The Two Frogs
printer friendly version
Two Frogs dwelt in the same pool. When the pool dried up under
the summer's heat, they left it and set out together for another
home. As they went along they chanced to pass a deep well,
amply supplied with water, and when they saw it, one of the Frogs
said to the other, "Let us descend and make our abode in this well:
it will furnish us with shelter and food." The other replied with
greater caution, "But suppose the water should fail us. How can we
get out again from so great a depth?"

Do nothing without a regard to the consequences.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
